    I was wondering if anyone has any more info on whether we can use the TMobile Sim Cards. I too had ordered a sim card from tmobile months ago and have not been able to use it on my Verizon Lumia 2520.
    Unfortunately I don't have any new information regarding this. Although I do believe the solution relates to the Verizon software which is installed on the device, but I do not know how to bypass it. If I find anything regarding this, I will post it on the thread.

    Xnauticaxtc, have you read anything on how to get the Tmobile SIM card to work on the Verizon Lumia 2520?

    I've been reading the posts, but the only thing is to try to call Tmobile to force LTE 4.

    Thanks!

    Did you have any luck with that? Please let us know! I'm still using my Lumia 2520 as a WiFi device and tethering it to my phone. Please do share.

    Has anyone got their Verizon 2520 to work on any other carrier other than Verizon? ATT doesn't work.

    Anyone tried Canadian carriers? I tried Rogers and TELUS, didn't work.

    A user send posted this on a thread suggesting the idea that you can unlock the Verizon Lumia 2520 to be used on other networks.

    Please read link above before reading the following. I bought a Verizon SIM card to test this out, and it appears that I was unable to change to connections to make it read the T-Mobile sim card. I was successful at changing it from Global mode to LTE/CDMA modes but it looks like the device is still unable to catch a T-Mobile signal. I'll keep you guys posted if anything new comes up.

    Unfortunately WP Central won't allow me to post a link to the Verizon page which was referring to above. To get access to the page please do the following:

    Go to Google or Bing, and search "Network Mode Settings - Nokia Lumia 2520.". This link will have instructions on how to change the tablet into different modes (GSM or CDMA or LTE). But as a stated in the post above, my attempts to utilize T-Mobile network on the Verizon device was unsuccessful.

    Anyone can change the APN into your carrier without Verizon SIM Card?

    Through this page of Verizon Wireless, I bought a Verizon SIM Card and inserted it into my 2520, it showed the LTE/CDMA and Global network but GSM/UMTS. Don't know why?

    I am finally using my Verizon Lumia 2520 with a TMobile SIM card!!!

    Basically, I went through the following steps.

    I put in my Lumia Icon SIM card from Verizon into my Lumia 2520, the system then recognized a firmware update which then I installed and went through that process. Once the updates finished, I went to the Connection Manager and changed the APN to epc.tmobile.com and changed to Global mode. Next I put in the T-Mobile broadband SIM card, rebooted the device and now I am online with connection to TMobile!

    On a side note, I did need to call TMobile to reactivate my free 200mb SIM card since I haven't been using it in months, and they asked for the device IMEI number (I don't know if this was necessary information)

    Hope that this helps everyone!

    Thanks for sharing. I will try it on my 2520. However, I don't have Verizon SIM card. Do you think if it will work to buy a prepaid SIM card?

    [EDIT]: Indeed, you do not need any Verizon SIM card if you already update the firmware. I put T-Mobile SIM card in, it connects immediately and works fine(it did not work at the time when I purchased the tablet), and then I put AT&T SIM card, the connection shows AT&T HSPA, the signal bar is full, I put wap.cingular as APN setting, but I am still not able to connect.

    Thanks for sharing the good news. Is there any app available in the store for T-Mobile connection Manager? The pre-installed app is for Verizon connection manager and it does not show the T-Moblie SIM card details.

    The my ATT app has the unlock settings on the ATT model. I suspect there Is a similar app for Verizon.
    Hello Oliverk:

    Is it possible for you to post your AT&T Lumia 2520 recovery image to the internet? I want to load AT&T version firmware to my Verizon Lumia 2520. Just wanna to try out if it does work or not.

    Thanks

    I had activated the T-Mobile Micro SIM card in my tablet. I am getting full bars and connection. It shows LTE and some times it shows EDGE. I was surprised to see a message from Vodaphone that the SIM card is not recognized. Should I be concerned even though I get data connection?

    Hi just signed up with at&t and brought over my Nokia Lumia 2520 Windows 8.1 RT Tablet from verizon. I got the sim card working in it but i cant seem to connect to AT&T's LTE Network only to the HSPA+ network which has slower speeds (8d/2u). Do i have to contact AT&T to force LTE band 4? or is there a connection manager that has those options available?


    are there any apn settings (set to broadband at the moment) that im missing that would allow for faster internet speeds?
